This position is with our Advanced Development Programs known as the Skunk Works located in Palmdale California.
This is a full time senior technical lead position for the Virtual Prototyping group.
The Virtual Prototyping group is an engineering visualization provider of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) services and solutions to Lockheed Martin Corporation and its customers worldwide.
Through the power of advanced visualization, Virtual Prototyping helps people understand complex systems and ideas by "bringing concepts to life," allowing for better, faster decision making and, ultimately, assisting programs in winning new business and performing on existing programs.
From conceptual design thru sustainment, Virtual Prototyping provides discriminating technologies to support the complete product life cycle that articulate information using simulation, visualization, virtual collaboration, human computer interfaces, and synthetic real-time environments.
These capabilities save time, reduce costs and risks, improve quality, and enhance safety by increasing product and process understanding.
The group provides unique capabilities and tailored solutions through product visualization, manufacturing simulation, serious games applications, vehicle simulation, operational awareness, virtual training, maintainability & sustainment operations, virtual & augmented reality, battle space visualization, continuous improvement efforts, facilities development, and much more.
This position has 2 main responsibilities:
First, this position will be responsible to oversee the Virtual Prototyping group's day-to-day project management and execution.
